Daily Multivitamin Supplements Improve Memory And Slow Cognitive Aging In Older Adults


In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers report that daily multivitamin supplements, compared to placebo, improved memory among participants.


Multiple studies demonstrate a clear link between nutrition and cognitive performance. Based on this finding, poor nutrition is now seen as a key risk factor for cognitive decline and dementia.

Research shows that vitamin D deficiency is directly linked to dementia. Low levels of the B vitamin folate/folic acid are also associated with risk of the condition.

A recent study found that B vitamin supplements have significantly favorable effects on cognitive scores in older people. This finding added to the growing evidence that supplemental B vitamins can prevent dementia.

Other research has linked diets rich in vitamin E and carotenoids to reduced cognitive decline, while low levels of vitamin K have conversely been linked to a risk of cognitive impairment.
